Creating resumes for skilled positions is a technical task and must be dealt with accordingly. The resume of a building maintenance worker is quite different from that of a general maintenance position. Since in this case the job is more specified, a winning resume for a building maintenance position requires more specialized, building specific maintenance skills.

Duties of a building maintenance worker may vary slightly depending on the preferences of the hiring organization, however the general custodian tasks attached to the position in addition to building maintenance and minor repairs include maintaining the building in a neat and clean order, keeping inventories updated and coordinating with the manager on daily basis.
